• Protect the Drews Pond Wood area
    **IMPORTANT: You can help us prove that this land is valuable to the people of Devizes, please fill out our short questionnaire: https://forms.gle/nVaEbX2tSB95Frtf9 ** The Local Plan and Neighbourhood Plan are being reviewed. These plans will decide where to put hundreds more houses in Devizes. These plans shouldn’t just be about where to put development - they also need to identify areas that are special and important for people and wildlife so that they can be protected for the future. Drews Pond Wood Local Nature Reserve and the land around it was once part of the grounds of Roundway Hospital County Asylum (1849). All the land that was part of the hospital is linked by history and has a special character. The old grounds support wildlife associated with Drews Pond Wood and also provide important amenity land for local people to enjoy. Designating this land as a Local Green Space could: - Protect local wildlife habitats throughout the area. - Conserve habitat of internationally rare bats including the rare Annex II Bechstein’s bat on the IUCN Red List as Near Threatened in Europe. - Ensure the retention of well-used amenity land important for health and wellbeing, including disability-friendly green space. - Prevent erosion of a local heritage asset that is an important part of the history of Devizes.

  • Remove Picton from Cardiff City Hall
    Thomas Picton’s statue has stood in the collection of Welsh Heroes in Cardiff City Hall for a hundred years, honouring his military exploits and ignoring his crimes. Even by the standards of the early 19th century, Picton was a particularly brutal figure in the transatlantic slave trade and the harsh exploitation of the sugar plantations. He was convicted of the torture of a 14-year old girl. He was no hero. Cardiff today aspires to be a welcoming city. People from across the world have settled here to work and to live, bringing vibrancy and diversity. Thomas Picton has no place in the capital city of Wales. Removing this statue will send a message to Black people in Cardiff and across the world that the city recognises the role people like Picton played in slavery, and that we must address the systemic racism that still exists due to slavery and Empire.

  • Improve Central Hill, Crown Dale, and Elder Road junction
    Elder Road junction has split highways management between Lambeth and Croydon and for years has been left without improved crossings. It is cross border, where Central Hill is principally managed by Croydon, and Crown Dale is principally managed by Lambeth. We request a joint cross-border approach to: - investigate, consult and report what layout changes and other interventions would improve road safety at the junctions with Elder Road and Central Hill and Crown Dale; - introduce new road safety measures by schools (Croydon and Lambeth side), especially to address school opening and closing; - reduce dangerous speeding by drivers, and consider 20mph due to the concentration and number of local schools, and its steep hills; - and encourage increased walking and cycling locally, to make safer access to local parks, to many local schools and health services on this road, and to seek funding for highways improvements. Also important, is to tackle other dangerous junctions on Central Hill (at the Salters Hill and the Westow Street junctions), and further along Crown Dale. This section of A214 (from Crown Dale to Crystal Palace) sees too many Killed and Seriously Injured (KSI) casualties. We want a safer future for everyone who lives, works and goes to school on these local roads. Add your reasons for signing with concerns you have about safety on this road.

  • Petition Supporting Proposals to Improve the Car Park at Sutton Park's Boldmere Gate (2021/00528/PA)
    Boldmere Gate is one of the major entrances to Sutton Park and the current parking provision is both unsafe and unattractive. The plans that have been submitted propose laying eco-turf and porous hard standing that will make the parking area more attractive visually, safer for visitors, better for the disabled whilst being ecologically sustainable and sensitive to Sutton Park's status as a Grade II listed Historic Park & Garden, Scheduled Ancient Monument, Site of Special Scientific Interest, National Nature Reserve and the Heart and Lungs of our Town. The current damaged overspill area would be returned to natural heathland. The 2022 Commonwealth Games Triathlon will take place around Boldmere Gate, the current facilities are not fit for purpose and do not do justice to Sutton Coldfield. This is a perfect opportunity to showcase Sutton Coldfield internationally whilst leaving a tangible legacy for the residents. More details of the plans can be found here: http://eplanning.idox.birmingham.gov.uk/publisher/docs/13FC24C7A7169B908205CDFD06FBE2FC/Document-13FC24C7A7169B908205CDFD06FBE2FC.PDF

  • SAY NO NOW! To future flooding disasters in Holland-on-Sea!
    Holland-on-Sea is already suffering from flooding to roads and houses, the ditches are often waterlogged when we have bad weather, not well maintained and no longer dredged because of environmental issues. The drainage pipes cannot cope with the amount of water as it is, and that is without the additional water generated from the planned development! ALL RESIDENTS of Tendring that use the narrow country road of Sladbury's Lane, are already being affected by regular flooding of the road and pathway. This has caused accidents and damage to vehicles and will undoubtably increase further, with greater flooding and the additional traffic generated from the Phase 1 housing development. Tendring District Council had previously refused this planning application, with good reason, but it was unfortunately overridden by government. The developers won this battle, with no regards for the consequences it would have on the local people, who will now be at further risk of their homes flooding. Some homes already struggle to get insurance as their properties are considered a flood risk and are being refused by some insurance companies, additionally creating a situation where homes will be unsellable and loose considerable value! We must oppose this drainage system for this development, if we do not want the situation we already have to become worse and worse again!! If more houses are approved on green belt land for a Phase 2 development, this would then affect more residents in the area, and more pressure on the struggling infrastructure of Holland on Sea.

    Developers have just been granted permission to revamp Newport Market. But as part of the £12-million revamp the developers propose to cover the stained glass window with a new window film with the company logo. The stained glass window was commissioned by Newport City Council as part of the refurbishment of the market in 2003. It is the largest stained glass window in Wales and represents a significant work of public art in the UK. The artist who designed the window has said that this would be an act of cultural hooliganism. The organizer who commissioned the window on behalf of Newport Council in 2003 has said that Newport needs to assert its ownership and pride in the artworks that it has commissioned with public money for the people of Newport. The city of Newport lost an important work of public art when the Chartist mosaic mural was destroyed in 2013.

  • Speed bumps on Talbot Road
    So many cars racing up and down the road. So dangerous, especially as two schools behind it. The big issue is the lower end , near Halfords up to Post Office. Have support from community support officer who is concerned also. I've told Tameside council in numerous occasions, but they said until a petition was done or a child was run over and killed (their words not mine!) Nothing would be done about it. Let's not let it be the latter! Please sign and help your community

  • Rocky Lane entrance off A23 is an accident waiting to happen.
    Re: jct A23/Rocky Lane The junction of Rocky Lane and the A23 is one big giant accident waiting to happen every single morning. We have to travel it 6 days a week to get to RAA. Rocky Lane is way too narrow for the kind of traffic and the amount of traffic that travel up and down it. You have a primary school near the junction which makes the junction extra busy and you even get kids crossing the street from the bus stop! There are potholes along the side of the entrance which are very bad. Making a right is very difficult on the A23 from Rocky Lane especially with traffic turning in front of you to enter. You end up having a tailback going halfway up Rocky Lane which is just a lot of pollution. It terrifies me to drive it like no other road I’ve experienced. It feels some temporary lights there that work at peak hours or actually move the existing lights back to include Rocky Lane might help. It is unfortunate RAA doesn’t have an additional entrance/exit onto Gatton Park Road. This would make the school so much better and not the cause of such potential danger. It takes me 40 minutes for a school run of 5 miles in total.

    This is important as people speed down this road and it is a main road the kids cross before and after school. This year alone 2 members off my family have been run over on this road. It is extremely busy and needs to safer.
